Molding Students into Teachers

The Department of Teacher Education prepares teacher candidates to teach in public, private, or Christian schools. We seek to develop educators who are skilled professionals and reflective decision-makers who also exhibit Christ-like characteristics in their professional and personal lives.

As an education major, you'll receive a strong educational base from faculty members who are themselves experienced teachers. You'll spend hours in actual classrooms getting first-hand experience with the students you want to teach.
